He said: “It looks like a little green man running. It just disperses into the surface of the road.

“If you look closely, you can see a head. It’s very surreal. I was a policeman and a pilot for 20 years and have never seen anything like this before.”


“I have no idea what it was. We have used the same setting, taken photos in the same location and in different locations and nothing has appeared again.

“We have experienced a lot of strange things since we took over the place two years ago so the staff think something spooky had followed me home that night.”

It looks *exactly* like a lens flare to me - it appears to be an internal reflection of the bright light at top right - I'll lay a bet that shape of that light is similar to the flare, and I'd also suspect  that it is a fluorescent (I'll give reasons later).  I challenge the claimants to show us a daylight shot of that same scene, but including the light, and another identical shot taken from the same spot (same exposure settings, and importantly, same *zoom* setting...

I note that this a new camera to them, yet they dismiss lens flare without reason.

My experience with cameras and photography would lead me to the same explanation.  Lens flare.

Agreed. Lens flare. Even an un-educated individual would be able to surmise this.

You haven't gone out much. I have witnessed people pointing at a Goodyear blimp and telling every one that it's a UFO.

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

lol. This is true. However, being this community, I figured everyone here surely would see this as what it is. Right? ;)

I'm just confused by the use of  the word "spooky" in the description. :hmm:

I don't see a head. Or legs that make it appear to be "running" either. It looks like a glow stick. Or a lightsaber.

Or just boring old lens flare...

I'm wondering if it was initially made a by light from one of the camera's settings. Could that be possible?  I have a Sony Alpha, but it's an older one and not working properly. :hmm:

Are there any UK papers that don't print such silliness?

Just because he was a policeman and a pilot for 20 years, doesn't mean he's not insane now.

If they didn't know what it was then it was, without doubt, a UFO.

Just because other countries' newspapers print nothing but economic doom and gloom, wars and politics doesn't mean that British newspapers should.  Sometimes it's good reading a lighter story for a change.

To much Buckfast leads to silly assumptions.

If what I type offends you, don't see it as an attack, but as my opinion.
